Other than that, I've been concentrating on potty training with Alex - an ongoing, heart-wrenching challenge since he was 3 years old (he's six now). Am I the only one here with an "older" Aspie child that isn't potty trained?? (I know I've asked that before - sorry). I went to a behavioral specialist on Wed. (she's actually a psychologist) to work out some sort of behavioral modification plan. Really all she did was set up a strict reward system for him (geesh - like I haven't tried THAT before!). I am SO frustrated by this whole thing (and of course try like crazy not to let that show in front of Alex).
Latest obsessions - still (and always has been) cars. Now he is fascinated by where roads go, and tells me which way to drive to get to the grocery store, gas station, etc. If he had his way, I'd spend hours driving around our town, going down certain roads so that he could see where each road ends up and find out the different ways to get from point A to point B. Unfortunately, I can't afford that much gas! LOL
Sorry this is long - just wanted to check in and not be too much of a stranger!
